Welcome to the Montrose Football Club website.
Welcome to Season 2016
LATEST NEWS .................................................
Last week we hosted Noble Park and had a very good day. The Under 19's were depleted due to injury, and were still in the contest at 3/4 time, but eventually they fell away and went down by 6 goals. A good effort in the circumstances. BEST - SOLIGIO, ALLSOPP, VAN ROSSEN AND WHITCHELL. The Reserves had a close contest till 3/4 time. However, in the last quarter, we kicked away with some great team play to run out winners by 38 points. BEST - BELL, BENNINGA, STOCKTON AND HORE. In the Seniors, we began brightly enough and held a 2 goal lead at half time, however, after the main break, Noble kicked away scoring 4 goals to nil to make it a 2 goal deficit for our boys at the last change. In the last, we were ableto keep composed and with contributions all over the ground got the vital goals we needed scoring 5.5 in the last and take the game from Noble by 3 goals. BEST - HAMS, BENNINGA, O'MCINERNEY AND SCHILLING.

PHOTO: STEP BACK - THINK CUP
AN INITIATIVE OF THE MONTROSE & BLACKBURN FOOTBALL CLUBS
Every game that Montrose & Blackburn Football Clubs compete in now has more at stake than the 4 Premiership points - they are matches that act as a timely remineder for Members of both Clubs and their communities about looking after each other whether at the footy or when we socialise.
In 2014, when the Clubs hosted an AFL International Cup Match at Montrose (between the USA Revolution and the New Zealand teams) and it was decided to dedicate future matches between our Clubs to the "STEP BACK - THINK" campaign to further raise awareness on how to avoid being involved in the often vicious and unwarranted attacks on people that have occurred in recent years at public entertainment venues. There have been numerous deaths and permanent disabilities caused to young males over recent years that have also have the added trauma to the families and friends of both the victims and the perpertrators.
The matches between Montrose and Blackburn are now fought out for the "Step Back - Think Cup" that has been won by Montrose on the first 2 occasions and is currently held by Blackburn after their win in late 2015. No doubt we are looking forward to the rematch this year and we will be putting in our best effort to win the "CUP" back for Montrose Football Club.
Keep your eye open for the 2016 draw as these are great matches to watch as both Clubs vie for the "Cup".
